Planning a trip to the Hawaiian islands? Then you’ve come to the right place! This is where you can find the best Hawaii vacation travel tips, island guides, and all about our own experiences.

We’ve taken numerous trips to Hawaii over the years, spending time on Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island. Yet, our most recent visit was for one month to beautiful Maui.  

Having a long term apartment and Maui rental car gave us the ulitimate freedom to see so much of this amazing island! It’s a destination that’s full of hiking trails, farmers markets, and so many cute coastal towns.

One of our favorite excursions we took was driving the famous Road to Hana. This epic one day road trip had scenic views and more beautiful beaches than we could count. We even walked the Pipiwai Trail through Maui’s Bamboo Forest to a 400 foot waterfall!

As you can see, there’s so many incredible things to do and see in the Hawaii Islands. Check out all our Hawaii guides for fun tips, food ideas, and outdoor activities.
